Dan Liljenquist: No Vetting, No 'Initiation Fee' — In Short, No Litmus Test for Utah Republican Candidates

Warhorse Davis County Republican Dan Liljenquist "gets into GOP Chairman James Evans' "grill" in a very big way

Despite the unprecedented success of Republican governance in our state, it is sad for me to see the Republican Party itself divided in an acrimonious struggle over how Republican candidates are to be selected.
Alexander Hamilton once said, “In politics, as in religion, it is equally absurd to aim at making proselytes by fire and sword.” Heavy-handed tactics will neither protect nor save the Utah Republican Party. If the party is to survive and thrive in the years to come, we must preach the principles of the party using persuasion, logic, compassion and kindness to continually grow, re-energize and renew our ranks.
In short, we must apply the principles of the Republican Party to the Republican Party.

Choice "words of wisdom" from from warhorse Davis County Republican Dan Liljenquist, in this morning's Deseret News online edition:
Note to Utah GOP Chairman James Evans:  Your days in Utah GOP leadership are clearly numbered, son, when hard-core GOP folks like Mr. Liljenquest are "getting in your grill" on the editorial pages of the Church-owned D-News.  Just sayin'...

Comments, anyone?
